Château Dassault: Vineyards

The original vineyards of Château Dassault came to a little under 29 hectares, which surrounded the château in a single block. With the presumed addition of 12 hectares from Château Faurie de Souchard, situated just to the south, it seems likely this figure will climb to about 41 hectares. The property sits north of St Emilion, to the east a little, close to the road that leads out from the top of St Emilion in the direction of Saint-Genès-de-Castillon. Its closest neighbours include Chateau Peyreau and Clos de l’Oratoire, both domaines in the possession of Stephan von Neipperg, just to the east. Northwards is Château Trimoulet, west is Château Cap de Mourlin, while to the south there lies Château Soutard and Château Petit Faurie de Soutard.

The vines are planted on a terroir of sand and clay. Naturally Merlot dominates, at about 70% of the vineyard, with 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
